Sandy Wilson passed away Sept. 20th 2018. After living 4 great years in Berea and such a wonderful 4 years of high school swimming he went on Ashland College as the first swimming coach. He coached many All Americans and remained at Ashland for 30 years until he retired. We were living on Whidbey Island, Washington where our youngest son is living when coach Sandy came down with demetria. Our memories of Ohio were so great! Would love to hear from anyone that would like to e-mail: wilsonsandy1000@comcast.net. Love Val 



Don't forget to check out the Supplemental Site from time to time, among other things it includes the obituaries from some of our GREAT teachers we were fortunate to have.

I'm sorry to let you know that Linda "Lynne" (Umstead) Salay passed away on November 20, 2018.  I would like to thank Phil Toomey for contacting me.  Thank you, Phil



Sorry to let you know that Coach Sandy Wilson passed away in September 20, 2018.  I have his obituary on our Berea Project site with other teachers, etc.  I would like to thank Tom Budisak for taking the time to contact me about Sandy.



I hope you like the new layout.  I wanted to let you know, the "Log Out" selection is in the drop down menu, click on the little "head and shoulder" in the upper right hand corner.  Let me know if you have any questions or comments!

Karen Sauke is asking our help to try to identify a student who went to Loomis School (pictures link here).  As she recalls, his name was Joel and lived at the Berea Children’s Home.  He and a companion were skating on ice in the Berea Metro park and his friend slipped under the ice. Joel attempted to rescue him and drowned instead.

Any thoughts, suggestions, or ideas?  We all love a good mystery!
